This is by far the best beef wellington I have ever had. If you are a foodie, go to this place. No matter what, dinner is always awesome!

If you've never been, you're missing out! It is definitely awesome, you will spend $100 per person probably, if not more - but it's definitely worth it! Just try not to blink so you don't miss anything! Had a blast! Food is great too! I...More

I felt part of an exclusive club. I loved being fancy and dressed up and walking around to the different rooms. All of the magicians (and guests) were friendly and extremely entertaining. The food was delicious and I was apprehensive because of a few bad...More

The meal was excellent - better than I remember from prior visits over the past 25 years. I started with the Thai curry crab bisque - excellent flavor with a nice kick. My Sea Bass was wonderful, and the steak, salmon, and risotto ordered by...More

Not cheap. You have to pay an entrance fee (I think it's around $50, there's a minimum for dinner, but figure at least $120 plus 10 drinks at $10 is another $100. So probably at least $250
